    I bought a "TAZCAP" capacitor rated
    MFD: 23,000
    VDC: 15
    does MFD mean millifarads or micro?
    A micro would be a uFD instead of MFD because 23,000MFD would be 23 Farads which is almost impossible to put inside this small capacitor. Its 4 inches X 1.5 inches

    It does mean uF... I have always hated when they use "mF." I don't think it's a typo though, since I see it from time to time on different manufacturer's stuff.
